Really? none?

I thought UAC popped up when a program was being installed .... ie if you clicked on a virus.exe file in your email would UAC not pop up ?

It's you that stops it, UAC asks do you want to continue so the decision rests with you.

Do not rely on UAC stopping anything,hope you have antivirus and firewall installed?
